Topic: Risks to Children’s Health: Chemicals in Consumer Products
There is increasing concern about children’s exposure to chemicals found in common consumer products such as furniture and electronics (flame retardants); cosmetics and personal care products (phthalates, triclosan and other phenols); food storage containers (BPA); and children’s toys (phthalates and metals). This webinar focuses on recent studies that are advancing our knowledge of the health effects of these chemicals, examining trends and changes in exposure over time and methods for communicating with patients about risks and lowering exposure. Presentations will be followed by moderated discussion.
